Bulldogs Fall At Marist In Season Finale

Onorato Finishes With .430 Batting Average To Set New School Record

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – Yale's offensive outburst from Sunday didn't carry over. Two days after belting eight home runs in a doubleheader with Brown, the Bulldogs were limited to two hits in a 6-0 loss at Marist in the season finale.

Sarah Onorato went 0-for-2 in the game with a walk, but still finished the season with a .430 batting average, which is a new school record. It narrowly edges the .429 average Jennifer Fong had in 1993.

Yale's best scoring chance in the game came in the first inning. Singles from Tori Balta and Hannah Brennan and a walk to Onorato loaded the bases with one out, but the three were left stranded when the next two hitters were retired.

Yale (10-37) had only two base runners the rest of way. Chelsey Dunham walked in the second, and Riley Hughes drew a walk in the third.

Marist (25-22) scored twice in the second, once in the fourth and three times in the sixth.
